We're at War?? Really? Since when. According to the Constitution of the United States only Congress can declare War. (Article 1, Section 8)
Looks like things may have changed according to our Congress, however...
Under the Constitution, war powers are divided. Congress has the power to declare war and raise and support the armed forces (Article I,
Section 8), while the president is Commander in Chief (Article II, Section 2). It is generally agreed that the Commander in Chief role gives the
president power to repel attacks against the United States and makes him responsible for leading the armed forces. During the Korean and Vietnam wars,
the United States found itself involved for many years in undeclared wars. Many Members of Congress became concerned with the erosion of congressional
authority to decide when the United States should become involved in a war or the use of armed forces that might lead to war.
Congress has either ignored its responsibility entirely over these years, or transferred the war power to the executive branch by a near majority
vote of its Members, without consideration of it by the states as an amendment required by the Constitution.
That means that the NYT broke the LAW and aided the enemy
by printing our war plans - which we are legally carrying out
and which both the dems and republicans approved of
This is certainly debatable. First off, how did the NYT break the LAW and aid the enemy?! Our war plans?! First and foremost, this assumes that Osama
Bin Laden was responsible for 9/11, which the FBI couldn't even get a grand jury indictment for to post on
it's most wanted internet profile
Second, your ignorant ass, assumes that somehow, revealing to Americans, that Big Brother is in fact Big Brother, would somehow endanger the lives of
Americans, in spite of public debate on a program that was implemented as a DIRECT result of Sept. 11, 2001. This is the same line of logic that Adolf
Hitler applied after the Reichstag was burned down by "communists" before he became dictator. So are you saying, that we should deploy the same
tactics of that of a fascist and not ask proper questions of our government and hold THEM accountable for their intelligence and logistics failure on
9/11?! Instead, hold the Constitution in contempt and blame our freedoms for it? Wow, welcome to USSA... Somebody buy the FlyersFan a one way ticket
to China, I hear they have NO threat from terrorism, as Tienneman Square has taught them not to question their government!
I love it! It's so awesome! All these 'patriotic Americans' saying the rest of us are traitors. Do you not realize that Adolf Hitler hung his own
people that questioned him during their "war" and the "good" Germans went along with it. You are nothing more than "good" Germans. You have been
sold a war by the Executive branch, unchecked (not suprisingly) by the Legislative (as defined by the Constitution) and here you are calling someone
trying to inform the public, which makes better decisions when informed of such, traitors... You make me sick.. I really wish you would revoke your
citizenship to America and move somewhere else... You are no better than Stalinists, Nazi's, or the UN trying to come in our # with a one world
government agenda... Please exit America and don't let the door hit you in the buttocks!
You think that 9/11 was the work of islamo-fascists.. I have a hint for you, that's half of the equation and that threat is not nearly as big as the
US government (the neo-conservative in particular) would have you believe!
We're coming in for a landing, please pull your head out of your anus and prepare for a bumpy ride!
